Boutique and Vintage Shopping in Snohomish

​Snohomish isn’t your grandma’s antique town anymore. I spent a day on foot in downtown Snohomish, scoping out the historic town’s best restaurants and shopping. Follow my guide to find the best boutiques, food, and local art Snohomish has to offer,

After finding easy street parking on the East side of downtown, I began my walk through Snohomish on a sunny Saturday morning. My first stop was Everything Tea (903 1st Street), a boutique filled with more than 300 jars of looseleaf teas from across the world that can be brewed in-store or purchased by the ounce to take home. After a few samples, I bought an ounce of their most popular tea, their bedtime Sunset in Seattle blend. 

After my morning tea, I was getting a little hungry, and the smell of fresh-baked pie beckoned me to Snohomish Pie Company (915 1st Street, Suite C). I usually can’t resist the offer of anything rhubarb, but in an effort to branch out, I passed up their strawberry rhubarb pie in favor of their bestseller, apple berry crumb. It did not disappoint.

Refueled, I continued down 1st Street, stopping at Anna Marie Creative Collective (1015 1st Street). Owner Anna Marie greeted me as I entered the boutique, which she opened in February 2023. Anna Marie’s shop features her handmade crochet art as well as art from more than 60 local vendors. The store has everything: earrings, candles, paintings, washi tapes, and more, all made by local artists.

Next, I followed a sandwich board sign down a side street to Stargazer Records (127 Avenue C, Suite F), a record store offering new and used vinyl, CDs, and tapes. The store, started by father-son duo Derek and Mark Florian, opened in late 2022 and is now a local favorite. The space is small but offers an impressive selection of vinyl and even has a small listening room to sample your records before purchasing. 

After finishing up at the record store, my stomach was rumbling, so I grabbed a table at Andy’s Fish House (1229 1st Street). Battling with my usual indecision, I left my lunch selection up to my server, who recommended the clam chowder and salmon taquitos. She did not lead me astray. As you read this, I may still be dreaming about that clam chowder.

Full and warm, I headed across the street to Bruning Pottery (115 Avenue D), a family pottery shop celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. The shop’s shelves are overflowing with pottery of all shapes and sizes. They even have shelves of “seconds” pottery with slight imperfections sold at a discount. Fighting my urge to purchase everything in the store, I finally narrowed it down to a beautiful set of plates, a bowl, and a mug to add to my kitchen. 

Carrying my bag of pottery like a baby in my arms, I made one last stop on my way back to the car. Walking into Little Shop of Light (1012 1st Street), I was greeted with the sweet smell of incense and the dancing light of crystals in the window. The shop has been open in Snohomish for 22 years and sells crystals, incense, tarot cards, candles, jewelry, books, and more. 

With a full day of shopping and eating under my belt, I walked the last few blocks through downtown and back to my car. The downtown streets were still bustling as the sun was setting, and the town’s many restaurants and bars were beginning to fill up. Definitely not your grandma’s antique town anymore.
